One of my constant ongoing projects here at DC has been working behind the scenes to build a full archive of British American Football fixtures.
For many years, BritballNow.co.uk was an amazing resource for information, detailing the history of the British game right back to its founding… however, the site stopped updating its records in 2010, and this has lead to the very real risk that much of Britball’s history might yet be simply lost and forgotten.
DC somewhat moved to fill the void, and we’ve now got full fixtures and standings from 2014 onwards, as I slowly work behind the scenes to also bring the wealth of information on BritballNow across into our archives, too.
However, this leaves a notable gap between 2010 and 2014 where very little information is available online, and the further away we get from these seasons, the greater the risk of the information becoming irretrievably lost.
I’ve managed to piece a fair amount together, and we should see some big updates to DC’s archives over the summer – however there’s a few areas where I simply couldn’t find any info and so I turn to you, the Britball Community for assistance in a number of time periods.
First up – the 2009/10 BUAFL season!
I honestly thought any comprehensive records of this one might have been lost to the sands of time, after a few years of unsuccessful searching… However, I finally managed to dig up the bulk of the season’s results – I believe I now have results for 182 of the 224 fixtures played in that season – can you shed any light on the remaining games?
If you’re in the know with results for any of these fixtures, please get in touch either via our Facebook page, or on the comments for this article, or at firstname.lastname@example.org with any information you have, and ideally any evidence you have to support the scoreline.
We’ll take ‘I think it was 30-33 if we have to, but of course I’d prefer definite scorelines across the board. 🙂 – Nick
